About the practice:

We represent clients in court and out-of-court proceedings arising out of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). Since the epidemiological situation has provoked a huge number of defaults and, as a result, local and international disputes in various areas of business, our services also cover the following categories of dispute:

    • breach of obligations and related losses (delivery, contract, leasing, service agreements, etc.);
    • tenant and landlord lease relations (reduction of lease rates, early termination of lease agreements, rent payment in instalments);
    • disputes caused by the bankruptcy moratorium (contesting transactions made during the moratorium period, avoiding fulfilment of obligations and withdrawal of assets using the pretext of the moratorium; non-obvious practical nuances of the moratorium, including those applicable to companies that are not covered by the moratorium);
    • insurance indemnities (full or partial termination of activity, non-fulfilment of obligations);
    • labour disputes (staff cuts, business optimisation);
    • business partnerships (corporate disputes, including those relating to exits, and forced “exits” from joint projects);
    • antitrust proceedings (overstating prices for goods and services in high demand);
    • disputes with regulators (customs regulations, energy, securities, financial markets, etc.).
